Banyan 1914 and subsequent volumes
This is a beautiful copy of the yearbook for both Brigham Young University and Brigham Young High School. Originally there were more high school students pictured than university students. Over the years, the high school staff and the high school section of the book were slowly decreased, until the high school section disappeared around 1930. Brigham Young High School published at least two yearbooks early on (1911 and 1912) but began to publish its own yearbook in the 1930s, usually called the Wildcat. By the way, this is not the first BYU yearbook -- it appears that the first one was published in 1913 and was titled "BYUtah". The preservation and accessibility of these volumes is wonderful. Thank you to everyone involved!
